Report: Syrian forces snatched operating room patients

Syrian security forces barged into a hospital and snatched 18 wounded patients, including five from an operating room, the Human Rights Watch reported, citing witness accounts.

The action occurred Wednesday at al-Barr hospital in the restive western city of Homs during a major military operation there. Human Rights Watch also reported that security forces prevented medical personnel from reaching wounded people in several Homs neighborhoods.

The report was issued Thursday as Syrian security personnel continued their unrelenting crackdown on protesters who take to the streets daily to rail against the Bashar al-Assad regime and its policies.

    Did this truly happen or is this just more right-wing propaganda to stir up resentment against Bashar al Assad? I guess that the right-wing thugs in Washington are not satified just to have Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, etc. in their grips. They also want Syria. They're long on greed!!!

    Syria has the right idea. I plan on using this tactic on Repubicans if they don't ley me have my way. Law by the gun is good for unions. It will keep all the rift raft out who really want to work and earn a honest days pay. I need their support along with the unemployed so I will extend their benifits until after the upcoming elections. I find it much easier to buy the vote than to actually do anything of value to earn your vote. Enjoy the free cash and free healthcare and remember to vote for me, the boy who allows you to do nothing all day and gives you cash for free.
